Heads up: You can now star contacts directly from the Gmail app

Gmail star

It’s a small change that seems to have crept its way into the latest Gmail update. Posted today to the official Gmail Google+ account was a neat little tip for starring contacts directly from inside the Gmail app. Simply click on the face of the sender while an email is open, and you’ll now be able to pull up that contact’s card and star them. Contacts that are starred from Gmail will then show up in People app. Quick, painless, and easy.
